Re: Head/Toilet

I have not. There was a discussion on the forum in 2019 when an owner was considering it. http://www.pdqforum.com/viewtopic.php?f ... let#p14656

Re: Bridge Closure on ICW?

I get an update on anything affecting the ICW every couple of weeks from BoatUS. It is called: BOATUS EAST COAST ALERTS. It is free for BoatUS members but you do have to sign up for it. I find it very helpful for finding out about things that are not on the charts. I went through and found work on 5...

Re: Hurricane Mooring Aft Cleats

We have them and they were added by a prior owner. On the subject of extra hurricane pilings, we went an alternative route. We have a dock at our house and we had a SlideMoor installed about four years ago. I love it. Our dock is a fixed dock. We added two very long pilings exactly where to aft and ...

Re: 75 HP Fuel burn

We are the same as John, cruise at 3400 and average about 2.6 miles to the gallon at 13.5-14 knots.

Re: Power Issue

Thank you both for the replies. I tried the switch and it didn’t seem to make a difference. Looked at some other things but did not think I was successful. We docked in Ft. pierce for the night plugged in the power and we have outlets again. Not sure how or why. I have been planning on replacing the...

Power Issue

We were making coffee on the boat this morning as we were getting ready to leave. We disconnected the power and turned the inverter on to continue with the coffee. After a couple seconds the power to that outlet went out and all our other outlets also. It looks like everything on the inverter 110 si...

Re: Flotation

I don't have any direct recall or the incident. In 2019 I did run across what I suspect is the boat John is referring to. It was on the hard at a marina in Port Canaveral. The marina said it went down in the slip in a hurricane, I think it was Matthew. I am not sure how far under it went. It was not...

Re: Florida Storage

Just to echo what John said. After doing a lot of research, we disconnected the Promariner monitor also. The monitor system would send a test signal into the marina electrical system that new ultra sensitive breakers interpret a problem on the boat and they trip. We have not had an marina electrical...

Re: West Coast Hull 114 going on the market

Hello Mark and Dea,

Welcome to the family and the forum. Janet and I have had our boat for five years and love it. I hope you enjoy yours as much as we have. The forum will become your best friend.

Re: PSS Seal Size or Part Number

Doug, We switched three years ago to PSS Type A shaft seals due to constant problem with the Tides seals. We have not had any problems. If you do develop a leak they can be adjusted in about 10 minutes with the boat in the water. I had to adjust them one time not long after they were installed. The ...

Re: Bottom Paint

I have had Propspeed put on the props the last couple of times the bottom was painted. It is not not an anti fouling paint but creates a finish hard and slick. I have been pleased with it. https://propspeed.com/

Re: Pulling Bundles and a few other questions

Carl,

Welcome to the PDQ owners group. It is a great forum and friendly owners when you meet them in person. If you don't mind my asking, where does your trip begin and end?

Re: Pulling Bundles and a few other questions

Carl, Removing the heat exchange core can probably be done as Duane says, just from the front. It clearly worked when he did it. When I did mine, I pulled the rear cap also. There is are two gaskets in the rear one of them controls the flow of the water. The flow control gasket could be damaged when...

Re: Heat Craft Cabin Heater Circulation Pump

Ours is also a centrifugal pump and located behind the engine on the port side. We have had the boat for over 4.5 years and have never had an issue with it.

Re: Boat Insurance

BJ, I am not sure why your premium is so high. Ours did go down a couple of hundred dollars this year, perhaps yours will. As I mentioned in an earlier post, the boat is at our house in Palm coast. We are only 1.5 miles from the ICW but the nearest inlet is 15 miles away (tide surges). We also have ...
